I know "Acronis disk director" or "Acronis Os Selector" can possibly do this as well just not sure how well it works with Vista.
It's just ok to write bootlader to Vista MBR (sda). It is the new NTFS filesystem (Vista) that is different with that of the NTFS that comes with XP.
It is the partitioning part that you have to be wary about. Whatever you do, DO NOT RESIZE VISTA PARTITION WITH GPARTED, QTPARTED, DISKDRAKE OR ANY OTHER LINUX DISK PARTITIONING SOFTWARE. You would easily hose your Vista installation this way.
You may however, safely shrink the Vista NTFS volume using its own disk manager. After you've resized your NTFS (Vista) partition to allow for linux partitions, you may then reboot and do your Sabayon installation.

As you have been warned, use the Vista tools to resize your partition. This worked fine for me, and I've had no partition problems.
I installed sabayon just as normal, and installed GRUB with the default settings. No problems there either. Vista still "works" (if you consider Windows to work) and Linux/GRUB are happy.
